Every time I’m reminded of the ending I begin rehashing just how stupid the ending was. I’m angry every time I think about how the show that was emphatically not about time travel and then definitely not about people who were dead the whole time turned around and dedicated entire seasons to time travel and people being dead already.

The Creativity Crisis (Newsweek) →

One likely culprit is the number of hours kids now spend in front of the TV and playing videogames rather than engaging in creative activities. Another is the lack of creativity development in our schools. In effect, it’s left to the luck of the draw who becomes creative: there’s no concerted effort to nurture the...
